Those of you adept at navigating the internet's seedy file sharing sites may find the entirety of the White Stripes' new album Icky Thump online. The leak appears to have sprung when DJ Electra at Chicago's Q101 radio station played the thing in its entirety and it was instantly bootlegged by resourceful listeners. This really, really pissed off band frontman Jack White, who apparently called the station from Spain, scolded Electra and asked her if she was sorry for what she'd done, which she isn't. "Someone gave us a copy of a record that we were really excited to play," the shaken DJ wrote on her blog. "The whole experience was an hour-long lovefest for him and his band." White's outburst may have forced Electra to consume massive quantities of room temperature Bud Light, but her sacrifice was for a good cause as many of you are no doubt currently treating your ears to the melodious sounds of some rocking bagpipes.
